I am a Toronto based artist and designer, specializing in cutting, folding, and sculpting with paper.

My work focuses on distilling and containing memories, to create a memento that requires active participation, and engages the viewer through the element of time.

These layered kirie (hand cut paper) graphics play with shadows, light, and optical ‘tricks’. The viewer is encouraged to explore the dynamic interplay between layers, and as they become engaged experience a sense of entering the work, and existing within it, to bring the image to life.
